WhatsApp continues to grow with every passing day, even at a higher pace after dropping the subscription fee for the app.
WhatsApp revealed that the instant messaging service now has one billion users using the app to get in touch with their friends and family across the globe.
The company said in a blog post,
We are proud of this milestone, and we’re humbled by the extraordinary ways all of you have used WhatsApp. Whether it’s sharing vital information during natural disasters or health emergencies, finding a date, growing a small business, buying an engagement ring, or seeking a better life – we’re honored to be a small part of what people are doing to make their lives and the lives of those around them better.
The service has joined the one billion club after Facebook and Gmail, and it appears it will continue to grow. The only question will be how the company plans about monetizing the service since they removed the subscription model. The company did say it will never show ads to offer users with a better experience so it’s going to be interesting to see what the company plans on that revenue side.
